The Summer Citizens Card is mandatory. You will be asked to show your card at all times throughout the summer. It allows you to participate in any on-campus program or event. The card will be used as an identification card for campus services such as recreation facilities, fitness centers, computer labs, parking privileges, and a debit card for dining accounts and select discounts. If you registered with the program in since 2015, you must keep your Summer Citizens ID Card. Bring it with you, because the card is a lifetime card that is reactivated each year you register with the program. Everyone who did not register in 2015 or 2016 will be issued a new lifetime card.
